Instructors from 404 Hockey have played with, and learned from coaches, instructors and players at every level of the game. We strive to:
• Instruct and educate hockey players who are interested in improving their individual skills and knowledge of the game,
• Assist in guiding and advising parents who have a child involved in the game, and
• Provide coaching services for those who wish to improve their own coaching style, learn new practice drills, and develop new techniques to help their teams compete.
Our instructors bring enthusiasm and passion for the game of hockey to every session. Our sessions are developed to be fun, challenging and improve the skills of players and coaches from a basic to advanced levels.
